We have a vision; a world without inherited blindness.

We are here for everyone affected by sight loss. Whether you’re losing your sight or you’re blind or partially sighted, our practical and emotional support can help you face the future with confidence.

As an Australian volunteer-led charity, Retina Australia funds world-leading research into treatments and cures for blindness caused by inherited retinal disease and cares for people and families through peer to peer support services.

Through education and advocacy we work tirelessly to empower around 15,000 Australians who are living with blindness or vision impairment.

Thanks to our wonderful donors we have invested over $5.5 million in more than 40 research projects since 1983.​
